Poll - getting nekked

Would you pose nude for a photographer? What would make you say yes, and what would be a dealbreaker?

Let's say the photoshoot is for a gallery showing and a photo coffee table book. Your name would not be attached to it in ANY way.

  • I'd do it...I'd probably even do it for free. I have a feeling it would be exhilarating!

  • I picked the second one but really it depends. How tastefully done it is, would my face be showing? I'd be more apt to do it if my face was not showing.
  • And I'd never show my boobs the way they are now..I hate them, they're too small.
  • aw roxy i have small boobs too and I think their great! Own your smallness!

    Yes, your head would be showing.

    And yes, they would be tastful. You would only do poses you were comfortable with (within reason..you'd have to show your boobs and below the belt goodies to a point).

  • So how much did they offer to pay you agk? ;) I voted for the last one, unless the pictures never showed my face.

  • Is my face in the picture?
  • I am a little self conscious now, but I have done it many times before.  I did a topless shoot for our local weekl magazine that had strategically placed hands so it did not show my boobss.  It was supposed to look like I was frozen in an ice cube to make fun of an old showgirl show that was done topless on ice.

    I have also done topless nude pics just for fun, to have them....with professional photographers, art professors, a local college artist that put the pics in a gallery when I was in Ann Arbor, etc.

    I also went to Hawaii with 3 other girls to work for a photographer that had shot for Playboy when I was about 21...it was a photography seminar that he taught and a team of about 5 other photographers came and we did shoots the whole week.  We didn't get paid, but we had fun in Hawaii and that is when I bonded with my best friend.

  • No my boobs are really small. Barely A's. If I could cover them with something that'd be fine.
    Basically I think I'd be scared to death but I'd do it.
  • Is this hypothetical or based on in reality, agk?

     

    In any case, I'd probably do it so long as it was tasteful and far from softcore. That said, I have no aspirations to be the prime minister or to take on any other role for which posing nude could reflect badly on me. 

  • Interesting that the money answer got the most votes so far. It looks like we have a lot of savvy business ladies here today.

  • I posted this before in an old poll.  It doesn't show hardly anything, and it is already on the internet so I don't care.

  • Sascha I remember you posting that before. It's hot.

    And as for whether or not this is hypothetical..it's not. You caught me. I've been in talks with a photographer and it looks like I'm going to do it. I think I'm just trying to gauge whether or not it's crazy.

    Haha agk. Though I think you should answer sun's question...

    You ladies are more brave than I am. I just have too many body issues for this. Also, sascha? I am in awe of you. You have a very lucky husband!

    Edit: Just saw your response agk. Weird knot delay lately!

    I dont know why everyones complaining about small boobs - you really do have a sweet deal. There is nothing unattractive about small boobs, dont need support in sports bras/reg bras, not as much (or the same kind) of sagging later in life. I dont think you should be insecure because of smaller boobs.

    That said, I would do it, but I have to say I hate the way my tits look naked because of certain factors I dont think anyone cares bout. But, art is art and I dont think anyone viewing the art will care about my insecurities so I would probably do it anyways!
  • Itty bitty titty committee anyone? We should unite. Though I am a full B now, it's only because I'm carrying excess weight. Whenever I start to lose weight, they are the first to go. :(

    Possibly at a gallery show here in NY, and probably in a book. Thinking about the book is craziness! I would totally put it on my coffee table and not tell people I was in it. Imagine their surprise when they see me while flipping through.<img src="http://cdn.cl9.vanillaforums.com/downloaded/ver1.0/content/scripts/tinymce/plugins/emotions/images/smiley-surprised.gif" border="0" alt="Surprised" title="Surprised" />

  • Thank you!  It was 5 years ago and I was about 10 pounds lighter.  I love having it to look back on.

    And I need to throw in there that I love, love small boobs.  The perfect size to me is a full B.  I only had mine done because they were so saggy from childbirth at a young age.

    I'm with Nebb on this, small boobs are a godsend. I have really small boobs too (an A as well), and I've always been grateful. I was a runner, so it was awesome to not have to worry about giving myself a black eye. I fit into most any shirt, and push-up bras are always waiting when I need some, uh, cleavage.

    But my favorite thing? I can go out without a bra on---and it doesn't matter. That's awesome.

    Yea, they're great for that and they're great for models but I will never, ever go out with a bra because I look like a boy. Pushup bra does nothing for me, try as I might there's no cleavage to be had.

    I can see this point. However, my problem with small boobs is that they aren't a good proportion to the rest of my body. All you ladies that I've seen pics of (rach, roxy, sun) are very slim and slender. I think you look balanced and beautiful. I struggle with being curvy from the boobs down, like to the point where I can wear a small or XS on top but a 10-12 on bottom. It makes me very self-conscious, which is why I'm always wearing padded push-up bras. I don't feel balanced without it.

    Also, congrats on the photo opportunity agk! I think you should do it. :)
